American Horror Story: Freak Show

Jessica Lange in American Horror Story

dvr this FX, Wednesdays, 10 p.m. Ryan Murphy’s ridiculous anthology series is back, this time with his stars working at a side show in 1950s rural Florida.

Begin Again

Keira Knightley and Adam Levine in Begin Again

dvd of the week The plot of John Carney’s delightful musical Begin Again is slight, using a few of the clichés of the let’s-put-on-a-show! genre and focusing on a rather simple redemption narrative in order to string together a bunch of beautifully directed musical performances.

One word I learned from some trans hackers recently was “dox.” It’s a verb that originates from the word “document.” and means “to search for and publish private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet.” Often it’s done maliciously; sometimes it’s done as reciprocation to someone who has [...]

Book review: ‘All I Love and Know’

Everything’s gonna be alright. You tell yourself that a dozen times a week. Something lost? It’ll be alright. Deadline missed? It’ll be fine. It’ll work out, it’s OK, you’re all good.
